sounds like you are on the right track. You have been shooting a lot and are comfortable with it. That is half the battle, next you just need to stay warm and see some deer

Remember to always watch for a reaction from any deer you shoot at and always follow up the shot, many times a round ball will pull hair into a wound channel and stop up the blood flow..and there is such a thing as to much powder in the pan

Wait for the rifle to go off before you move and take your eye of the target. I was dumb enough to do this during the early season and came home empty handed.

And, if you get one, make sure you Blood your Flinter. This is a tradition passed on to me by my late Gun builder Uncle. Take a little Blood from the Deer and make the four corners of the Compass , on the Stock, and thanks the Gods for the Gift.....
